MiC + Whimsy Meet on the Streets!!

Whimsy Stamps & Make it Crafty have come together 
to create a fun Urban Themed digi collection!

We have a couple of new things releasing today:
Then of course, what better characters to incorporate into such a scene than the fabulous KennyK rubber stamps available from Whimsy Stamps!  Our incredibly talented Design Teams have had a blast playing with all the different elements to bring you LOTS of inspiration.

We have broken it in to TWO HOPS
HOP A Starts HERE
& HOP B Starts HERE!

There will be a winner for EACH HOP and if you hop your way through BOTH, you’ll go in the draw for the GRAND PRIZE TOO!

HOP A & B Winners will each receive a $15 voucher from both Whimsy Stamps and Make it Crafty.

GRAND WINNER will win our full Urban Digital Collection, which include 4 Digi Sentiment sets by Ann Vento & the Urban Elements Collection from Make it Crafty

You are currently on HOP B and should 
have arrived from Pattie's gorgeous blog.

For today's creation, I've used a few images from the MiC Urban Collection, which are the fence (I love this fence), the trash can, and the cool bench.  From Whimsy Stamps, I've used Queens Cutie, Street Art Background, Cityscape Sayings, and Party Time Street Signs.

Stamp/Images/Sentiments: MiC Urban Collection (fence, trash can, bench), Whimsy Stamps Queens Cutie, Street Art Background, Cityscape Sayings, and Party Time Street Signs.; Medium: Copic on Make it Colour Blending Card; Paper: Fancy Pants It's The Little Things; Embellishments: ribbon; Tools: Tonic Guillotine Cutter, ATG Adhesive Gun (SPS has it for $18.89!)

Hope you enjoyed my creation for this hop!

Your next stop on HOP B is Viv's beautiful blog, but before you go make sure you leave a comment below to be in the running to win the prizes.

You have until August 21st 8PM Australian QLD time to make your way through the hops!

Be there...or be square!
